CNN Fires Commentator Marc Lamont Hill After He Called For Eliminating Israel, Endorsed Violent ‘Resistance’

From the Washington Examiner:
CNN has fired commentator Marc Lamont Hill, who sparked a firestorm after he made comments that called for the elimination of Israel and endorsed violent “resistance” from Palestinians, a CNN spokesperson confirmed to the Washington Examiner.

“Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a CNN spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

Hill, who has a long history of anti-Semitism, gave a bombastic speech at a U.N. event on Wednesday commemorating the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

The speech argued for boycotting Israel; warned against shaming Palestinians for engaging in violent “resistance”; and urged grassroots, local, and international action to “Give us what justice requires — and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea.”

The phrase, “from the river to the sea,” means expanding a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is a term that the terrorist group Hamas has used as a rallying cry for decades. Establishing a Palestinian state from the river to the sea would require the destruction of Israel, which is located in between those two bodies of water and is home to 44 percent of the world’s Jews.

The comments drew a sharp rebuke….
